Product Description

A Chosen Bullet is the story of what Bill Renje's passion as a Chicago sports fan has taught him about life and overcoming challenges. This passion helped him recover from the day a 9mm bullet ripped through his neck from five feet away.

Bill's life has been contrasted by deep darkness and glorious light, characterized by overcoming through perseverance, stained by underachievement and then finally experiencing success that few will ever know. Although he started his life as a bottomed-out paralyzed teenager, Bill Renje becomes a two-time Paralympic gold medalist, a happily married man, a blessed father of three children, and a successful businessman. With the support of his family and an abiding Christian faith, these values have carried Bill through his thirty-three year journey from tragedy to triumph.

Publisher's Description

A Chosen Bullet is the story of what Bill's passion as a Chicago sports fan has taught him in life and the struggles this passion helped him to overcome from the day a 9mm bullet ripped through his neck from five feet away. Bill's life has been contrasted by deep darkness and then glorious light, characterized by overcoming through perseverance, stained by first underachieving and then finally experiencing success that few will ever know. A bottomed-out permanently paralyzed teenager becomes a two-time Paralympic gold medalist, a very happily married man, a blessed father of three children, and a successful businessman. With the support of family and eventually a deep-abiding Christian faith providing his foundation, these values and lessons intertwining with Bill s thirty-three year journey as a Chicago fan take him from tragedy to triumph.

Endorsements

Growing up as a sports fan myself in Illinois, I can understand and easily relate to Bill’s passion for Chicago sports teams. The valuable lessons he learned from the accomplishments and disappointments of these teams, the support he has gained from his family, and the transforming grace of God he embraced while attending our church, has enabled him to experience triumph in spite of the overwhelming obstacles he has faced. A Chosen Bullet will inspire readers to see that with God "all things work together for good." -Dr. Ken Whitten, Senior Pastor Idlewild Baptist Church in Tampa, Florida

A Chosen Bullet: A Broken Man's Triumph through Faith and Sports is the life story of one of the biggest Chicago Bears' fans ever. The impact of faith and sports on Bill's life will inspire and motivate you to believe in the power and grace of God. In 1985, the Bears captivated the nation by dominating on the field with focus and determination like no other team in NFL history. 25 years later I learned that our team also inspired one of our greatest fans to win and triumph in the biggest game of all - THE GAME OF LIFE. A triumph in which he has showcase in a must read. A Chosen Bullet will awaken the consciousness within your soul to God’s unconditional love and grace. -Tyrone Keys, Super Bowl XX Champion & Founder of All Sports Community Service

The world of Chicago sports has always been built on the principles of heart, toughness, grit and determination. Drawing from the lessons taught by Windy City giants like Ditka, Payton and Jordan, Bill Renje Jr. tells us how he rode his own remarkable perseverance on his way to writing an admirable tale of personal redemption and triumph. -Kevin Kaduk, Editor of Yahoo! Sports’ Big League Stew and author of Wrigleyville

Bill's journey told in these pages is inspiring. His spirit comes alive as a great example of courage and will to his children and family. It's a lesson every kid in the Chicago schools should hear -- not to mention every Chicago sports fan who shares his passion. -David Haugh, Award-winning sports columnist with the Chicago Tribune

    Having known Bill personally but not knowing his true story made me want to read it immediately. Bill has overcome the worst situations to be triumphant and be able to complete college, work diligently and become a two time paralympic champion.

    This is a super book for teens and one who needs just a good boost to continue life. Bill draws from his experiences as a Chicago sports enthusiast and life to overcome the challenge of a severe bullet wound.

    Don't miss this book and keep an extra for a gift for a teen or adult who needs to find purpose and direction.
